Bumble Bee Lighthouse!
St John's Point Lighthouse, County Down, situated near Downpatrick. I made the trek out last week and was glad I did: this is such a picturesque spot.
The original lighthouse was built in 1844 but was painted white. Black bands were added in 1902 and the present Daymark of yellow and black bands were painted in 1954.
It is now the tallest onshore Irish lighthouse standing at 40 metres tall.
Even better, the two lighthouse keepers' cottages are now available for holiday accommodation!
I was really taken with the fog horns! They seem quite comical to me. Though as John commented, it wouldn't be fun if they sounded all night when you were staying in the cottages!
The sky was gorgeous and there were lots of con-trails. Thankful that not all days are dreary and the sky is blue here!
